The VLP 120 by Ueberschall is a virtual instrument combining a complete "Licks & Phrases" library of 5 CD's with an innovative audio engine from reFX. This library contains grooving "Vintage Licks & Phrases" for all styles in the Club, Pop & Dance scene. The Licks were played on more than 20 different live instruments by professional studio musicians.
Thanks to the MPEX2 algorithms by Prosoniq, these samples can be tempo and pitch adjusted to match your songs. The sounds remain crystal clear without any of the usual graininess. All licks were recorded at 120 BPM. These can be changed in tempo to ± 30 BPM (90-150 BPM) and retain the highest quality. The samples are in the most important keys for Dance, Pop and Club music: C/a, F/d, G/e. Each sample can be individually adapted to ± 12 semitones at no tempo change.
All licks and phrases of the VLP 120 can be easily combined. With the large selection of instruments complete song layouts can be quickly and easily produced.
The innovative waveform representation manifestly visualises the transition from loop start and end. In combination with the slideable controls on the outer ring for start and end, new variations can be created in a few seconds. The loops have no fixed start and end points any more!
Available for both Windows (VST/RTAS) and Mac OS9/X (VST/AU/RTAS) for £166 -- More information here
With PLP 120 by Best Service you get a collection of a thousand rhythmical grooves combined with a specially adapted user interface. PLP120 is a virtual instrument plug-in combining live-played percussion with an innovative audio engine from reFX. As with the VLP120 this is dramatically different from other products through the possibilities of loop settings with the so-called "loopeye." All loops are four bars in length but what makes it stunning is that you can easily change the start and endpoint of each of the loops thanks to the specially adapted and very usable interface.
PLP120 also includes new tech grooves based on electronic and acoustic rhythmic loops and a large collection of live-played percussion from all over the world. You get hundreds of construction banks sorted in numerous styles always mapped to two octaves of your keyboard. You can arrange your own rhythmical firework in a fast and uncomplicated way just by pressing some keys!
Available for both Windows (VST/RTAS) and Mac OS9/X (VST/AU/RTAS) for £132.95 -- More information here.
